86. my husband is a programmer and has always been paid overtime
is it possible that your husband is a poor negotiator? my husband has not worked there 30 years but he has worked over 25 years and he was by the hour/overtime/non-exempt employee from the very beginning

it is obvious that you are going to be forced to work a lot more late nights/weekends IF THEY DON"T HAVE TO PAY YOU

only managers are exempt where my husband works, everyone else is a regular hourly worker and all get overtime, so i don't think even if this law passes, they could single him out and stop paying him

if they did, i guess he would have a lot more free time because he turns down overtime as it is and he would just turn down more of it, however, he has a pretty strong specialty
